TravelPod Member ReviewsThe Green House Peru Sacred Valley
The Green House is really special. Kelly welcomed us into her home and cooked delicious dinners each evening, which we enjoyed with the other guests while sharing our travelling tales. Our room was very comfortable overlooking a beautiful garden with a backdrop of mountains, but it was the special touches that made our stay memorable like being able to curl up with a blanket round the fire in the lounge in the evening and going to bed to find it warmed with a hot water bottle.
It was a perfect location to explore and we found it easy to get about by local buses to visit Moray, Salinas and Pisac.

Day 3 started off much the same way as day 2. We were woken up early with coca tea, but today I was woken up at 5:15. No problem for me if we were late, but Rony was harassing us for taking too long when we weren't ready by 5:45. Since I was tired and he wasn't really endearing himself to me, I was about ready to kill him. Also, I am not sure why it mattered if we left by 6am since we were already making it to our destinations way too fast. Breakfast today ...
... that it flows into the Amazon which is the longest river in the world - 6700km - 150km longer than the Nile. We zigzag our way up the mountain to come into agricultural land on the other side. Corn, quinoa and potatoes in that order are the main crops here. Peru is the second largest producer of quinoa. Barley grown here is for the local beer only. We pass through the very old town of Maras with mud brick houses with tiled roofs. We ...
... were never quite finished because of the Spanish invasion in the 1500's. Ordelio said the Spanish destroyed so much. The largest stone in the sun temple weighs 90 ton and this had to be brought from down the mountain on the other side of the river, across the river and then up the mountain to where it sits today. They used to build mud ramps and either roll or push/pull with manual labour. Their building skills were so good, that in 1950 Cusco had a 7.8 ...
